"They were called the Black Angels from the time they first appeared in Minnesota, a crew of black-haired, bright-eyed youngsters, so unlike their flaxen haired father—seven of them and each one forever singing, except Joseph, who could not tell one note from another. Music was their passion from childhood. Small wonder, then, that they greeted with enthusiasm Benjy's plan for an Operatic and Concert Troupe; or that they set out with high hearts upon a new venture."
One Stayed at Welcome opens with the founding of “Welcome” by two young men, Larry and Dan, who became friends on their trek from the East. Their little town grows rapidly and within two years many new faces are to be found on the shores of Lake Welcome. Among the varied newcomers is an old school teacher and his daughter Lillie. Before a winter has passed both men are in love with her.
